OzTREKK students talk about why they love Sydney Dental School
We love it when OzTREKK students excel. We especially love it when they’re featured by our Australian university partners! In the video, two former OzTREKK students Bhavisha Thankey and Kyle Schaltz talk about why they are enjoying their time at the Sydney Dental School.
What will you learn in the Sydney Doctor of Dental Medicine?
In the first year, the course is based primarily at the Camperdown Campus and the Sydney Dental Hospital, and includes visits to the Westmead Centre for Oral Health. You will learn clinical context and theory through study as well as participate in simulated learning from year one. You will also undertake research studies, which continue throughout the four years of the program.
From year two, you will become increasingly engaged in patient-based clinical experiences at the two main academic hospitals. A community component is available through placements in rural, remote and metropolitan dental clinics.
By the end of year three, you will have a broad range of clinical experiences expected of newly qualified dentists, and will have the opportunity to participate in an elective placement locally, interstate or overseas. This will help you prepare for a particular career direction, explore different clinical settings and enhance skills in an area of your choice.
In the final year of the degree, you will undertake intensive courses in Fixed Prosthodontics and Implantology, as well as continuing your integrated clinical education.
